As pointed by Dan, the patch f8fd4c61b5ae: "[media] media-entity:
protect object creation/removal using spin lock" leads to the following
static checker warning:

	drivers/media/media-entity.c:781 media_remove_intf_link()
	error: dereferencing freed memory 'link'

drivers/media/media-entity.c
   777  void media_remove_intf_link(struct media_link *link)
   778  {
   779          spin_lock(&link->graph_obj.mdev->lock);
   780          __media_remove_intf_link(link);
   781          spin_unlock(&link->graph_obj.mdev->lock);

In practice, I didn't see any troubles even with KASAN enabled.
I guess gcc optimizer internally cached the mdev reference,
instead of getting it twice. Yet, it is a very bad idea to rely
on such optimization. So, let's fix the code.
